Summer Wellness Tips for Seniors
With the changing of the season, comes a change of lifestyle. Below are some tips to have a safe summer from www.senioradvisor.com.
With the summer sun getting stronger, hydration is key. Doctors recommend drinking six to eight cups of water a day during the summer. If you are planning on spending time in the sun, make sure to remember a water bottle. Drinks like soda, energy drinks or juice will not hydrate you as much as water will.
If you are going outside, make sure to pack sunscreen with you. The sun is much stronger in the summer, and may burn you faster than during the winter months. Reapply sunscreen every couple of hours to ensure you are protecting your skin from the powerful UV rays. Carrying sunscreen with you will prevent painful sunburn.
Check the Weather Before You Leave
This summer, be sure to check the weather before you leave home. By checking the weather, you are able to prepare for the day ahead. Being stranded without extra water and food, sunscreen or weather gear can be dangerous.
Following these tips will help keep your summer fun and safe!
